Thank you!

Eagle Families,

We have made it to the end of the school year!  It has been a different and difficult ending of the school for sure.  Our families and staff have stepped up and worked together to ensure our students are learning and thriving during this time.  I thank you for entrusting your child(ren) to OCPS and SunRidge Middle School.

  1. If students have any personal items remaining on campus please email sunridge_ms@ocps.net by end of day Thursday, May 28th (tomorrow).  We will be donating all remaining items on Friday. 
  2. All students returning to an OCPS school for the 2020-2021 school year will retain their laptop over the summer.  There are educational opportunities on our Launch site and through Khan Academy available to students throughout the summer.  We hope our students take advantage of these opportunities.
  3. Returning students with SRMS instruments can keep them for practicing over the summer.  Please email your music teacher with any questions regarding instruments.
  4. 8th graders, don’t forget we need your rocks back.  2020 8th graders will be leaving their mark through a rock garden made up your of personalized rocks.  There is a box outside the office during office hours.  You can place your rock there during the day.
  5. There is also a return box for library books placed outside of the front office during the school day.  Don’t forget to get those books returned soon!
  6. Boys and Girls Club is excited to offer free Virtual Summer Zone.  Click on the attached flyer for more information or visit www.bgcafterschoolzone.org.
  7. School visits remain by appointment only.  Please call before coming to campus. When visiting please wear face coverings and follow all CDC guidelines.

As you have probably heard the results of the OCPS Parent survey are in.  At this time 2020-2021 school year planning continues.  Please be sure the correct phone number and email are on file at your child’s school.  We will be communicating important back to school information through our messages and social media. 

Summer reading information can be found on the homepage of our website.  Please encourage students to participate in the summer reading activities.   Your students will have access to iReady for Reading and Math over the summer.  Students will log into i-Ready through OCPS Launch at http://launch.ocps.net using the same log in information as they did during the school year. While i-Ready is not required by SRMS for the summer, use of the program will help minimize learning loss. Don’t forgot to relax, read and rest!

To the parents of the eighth graders, I wish you and your child (ren) the very best in the future.  I have truly enjoyed this class of eighth graders and will remember the distance celebrations we enjoyed.  I look forward to seeing many of them graduate in a few years! 

Follow SRMS on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for summer updates. Have a safe and happy summer!  I hope to see our returning students in August.


Amy McHale, SRMS Principal


Celebrate the end of the year with a virtual signing party! Balfour is teaming up with Tribute to support students who are missing out on graduations and yearbook signing due to COVID-19. Head to www.tribute.co/balfour to get started. Students can “start a tribute,” enter basic information about themselves to create a personalized page that is easily shared with friends and family members.

Yearbooks will be arriving in June and more information will come regarding pick up once orders arrive. They can still be ordered HERE.

7th-Grade Immunizations

OCPS parents of rising 7th-grade students, the state of Florida requires that all students entering 7th-grade must have the Tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis (Tdap) immunization. Your child MUST have this immunization in order to start the 7th grade. We want to let you know the Florida Department of Health in Orange County is offering a special session for 7th-grade students to receive their required Tdap vaccine at no charge starting May 18. To schedule an appointment please call 407.723.5004 and press 2. For information, you can visit orange.floridahealth.gov. Your child’s immunization will be documented on the updated form you will need to submit to your child’s school before they can attend class for the 2020-21 school year. This is also an excellent opportunity to have your child’s immunization records reviewed by a health care provider to ensure your child’s vaccines are up-to-date.

There are many volunteer opportunities here at SRMS! If you are looking to get involved please email Jennifer Swanson at volunteers@srmsptso.org to hear about the many different teacher, school and PTSO activities available. We appreciate all of our volunteers as they help to make our school a success!

In order to help out with our students or chaperone a field trip at SunRidge Middle School, you will need to be an OCPS approved ADDitions volunteer.  This has to be done every year, so please make sure you have created or updated your ADDitions profile.
